The Board of Trustees of the Owen County Public Library observes with sadness the passing of Board Member Reese Nichols. Mr. Nichols was a valued member of the Board who always held the interests of the residents of the county as well as the Library in his thoughts. He did all he could to improve services as well as efficiency in every meeting or deliberation. He believed in the value of libraries, the expansion of services to all residents of the county, and fiscal responsibility in so doing. He was a champion of the successful Bookmobile project, and was looking forward to both the challenges and opportunities of future growth of our Library. On a personal level, fellow Board members were fond of Reese and appreciated his wit, candor, and commitment. Our sympathies go to his family, along with the assurance that he will be deeply missed.
